MLB Monday

1-1 yesterday +0.05 units year to date, scratching out a profit and unfortunately it's too late to post the Dodgers to kill the Giants in their opener with Big Bad Penny on the mound, but that's how it went down on this last day of March 2008.

On this day was pit falls and land mines everywhere as dogs bit hard.
Expect the unexpected as the saying goes. Early season underdogs are not simply a blue moon occurrence, but look at teams with core players intact and see how new additions have fared in Spring training to give you a gauge. Look for last years bottom feeders with retooled look and those with rebuilding mode. Keep your eyes on staying power teams to withstand their player losses. Don't forget the foreign imports with no MLB experience. There you have it on my early thoughts for this season. All that and no teams to name? Like the Dodgers to take NL West and will be back for my daily picks later.

Have a good season Players. Remember it a long way to the top if you want to Rock & Roll.

MLB 2008

Sunday baseball coming at you. I've been here in Arizona soaking up the sun, catching some Cactus league games, hanging out with some old friends and meeting some new ones. It has been fun, but time has come to make the trip back to SoCal. I'll be looking forward to the Dodgers making a run for the money this season with the Godfather guiding the way.

Today's play comes from the old crew that has been rocking MLB for over two decades. Keep in mind the Aces are the mound and Perez might hold his own although I'm not sure about the relievers.

ATLANTA BRAVES -1.5 at +102 for 1 unit(L)
ATL/WAS UNDER 8.5 at +105 for 1 unit(W)

MLB Cactus League Monday

Coming off a win with Padres.

Similar reasoning from last play. Mariners will take the long bus ride out to Tucson Electric Park and White Sox will be ready with their A team. Mark Buehrle will be taking the mound for his third start so far going 6 scoreless in 2 outings to give the home team some early edge. Also on schedule to pitch Scott Linebrink, Bobby Jenks, Boon Logan and Ehren Wassermann.
Mariners sending Erik Bedard who has been hit this spring. Others are R.A. Dickey, Ryan Feierabend, Sean Green, and Brandon Morrow. Seattle Mariners have listed Adam Russell, Carlos Vasquez and D.J. Carrasco, as pitchers other than Buehrle but I'm not sure about that. Don't quote me on it I have no confirmation still feel good enough backing the South Siders today.

WHITE SOX -110 for 1 unit(W)
1-0 +1.00 unit

Cacuts League Sunday

This match up in Peoria comes as White Sox makes their road game the old fashion way by way of a long bus ride from Tucson. You know it's important for cusp players to make that trip, but some of the vets that got their work in yesterday may opt to stay. There are only three teams playing in Tucson, D-Backs, Rox and White Sox, any other combination will require the bus ride. I'm also not big on the Cuban in Spring Training and Tomo Oka looks to follow. So I'll go with Wolfe taking the start at Peoria with Padres swinging pretty good bat.

SDP -110 for 1 unit(W)
1-0 +1.00 unit

MLB 2008 Cactus League Saturday

Yeah baby, bringing it to you from the Valley of the Sun. It looks like another perfect day and though there are CBB games all day it's just too much for me to be indoors. We have been scouting teams and taking notes so get ready for this match up at the Peoria Sports complex where we will back the Seattle Mariners vs San Diego Padres.

SEATTLE MARINERS +113 for 1 unit(L)

Looked good, but gave it away late.
0-1 -1.00 unit
